Verdict

Casa Jove was a very promising hurdler back in 2011 but had a long break and hasn't shown much in two recent runs though there's still time. Juan De Gracia attracted very strong support at Clonmel last time but once again looked very one-paced. KILCARRY BRIDGE has fallen in three of his six starts over fences but produced a very good performance when runner-up to Blazing Sonnet at Thurles. If remaining on his feet, he'll take all the beating. Rafi De Triana finished close-up behind Lough Roe Lady on his chasing debut and was then beaten narrowly at Cork. However, Lough Roe Lady had finished behind the selection at Thurles and that looks the strongest form. Theatre Mill makes his debut over fences and his pedigree suggests this should be his game.
